Modern Rebel: Alberto Mielgo & Pinkman.tv
Can you describe your artistic background before finding your way to animation?
What is the concept behind Pinkman.tv?
What was your motivation in creating the four pieces “Pill, Kill Your Stress, 女孩陰毛, and PINKMAN?” How are they related to Pinkman.tv?
How was each piece technically executed?
For PILL, 女孩陰毛, and PINKMAN, the process is simple: scan, pencil, animation. Once the animation is right, I do a very basic color action. For example, pink for body and dark pink for shadows. Then, I paint on top of each drawing. As the shadow layer has also been animated, I don’t loose shapes. As each frame is hand painted, the skin has that moving feeling, something that here, I was looking to see in the animation. So, every frame is a painting.
In the case of STRESS, the technique is the same, but the clean up is done by hand with black ink pens over standard paper, where I then scan it and edit it. The software used has been Photoshop and After FX. Phil Holder, a great 4×4 technician, helped me on many things and will hopefully in the future as well.
The sound is done by Luis Iruela, in LACAJAGRABACIONES.com – really great guys, very understanding people.
